Summertime is upon us, and healthy food is a must right now!
Everyone is coming out and getting semi naked in the parks of the U.K! making it an ideal time to create a crazy Kale Smoothie.
Kale, my favourite green leafy vegetable made famous for its insane amount of nutrition.
People often say to me I look younger than my 29 years of age! I strongly believe its because I incorporate raw fruit and veg (e.g Kale) into my diet, alongside tons of laughter, water and exercise!
One massive bag of Kale in my local greengrocer is 75p!
- A high dosage of antioxidants, which helps
- To fight free radicals, so you look younger, Forget expensive skin care!
- And is known to kill off cancer cells!
- Gives you a massive source of Calcium- 1 cup of kale equals double a glass of milk’s calcium content!
- Very high dosage of Vitamin C
The only downfall is possibly its taste, which I find personally quite bland so I have come up with this Smoothie recipe to make it taste amazing!!!
3 cups or handfuls of Kale
10 black grapes or blueberries
1 ripe Mango
150ml Soya or Almond Milk
1 tbsp Pulsin Hemp Protein Powder (Optional)
1 tsp Chia Seeds (Optional)
Plus or minus extra fruits depending on what you have available.
Chuck it all into a blender, and whiz until it’s smooth!
Its great to add ice cubes, to make it really chilled.
I like to pour it into a bottle and sip on it, throughout the day, whilst personal training which stops me from snacking on rubbish throughout the day!
Hope I have inspired you to eat your greens!
Kale is awesome steamed & drizzled with Hemp seed oil or Olive oil
Or even roasted! And made into crisps!
Feel free to leave a comment below, I wanna know what you do with your kale?
